At 225g this is a very light waterproof jacket. The 2.5 layer Ceplex membrane breathes reasonably well, and there are underarm zips for additional ventilation. I like the soft handle and light stretch in the fabric, unusual in such a lightweight waterproof. The adjustable hood fits well, and is slightly stiffened at the peak. There are two generous external pockets and an inside chest pocket. It’s a Bluesign product, and therefore has industry leading eco credentials.

VERDICT: A light waterproof for mixed weather.

BEST FOR: Three season trekking.
